On Monday, President Trump responded to the media’s focus on Democrats’ star witness at the House Judiciary Committee hearing, John Dean, who he called a “loser.”
“Look, John Dean’s been a loser for many years,” said Trump, later going on to note, “I think he was disbarred, and he went to prison,” sarcastically adding, “other than that, he’s doing a great job.”
In a social media post, the president called Dean a “sleaze bag” and has previously called the embattled Watergate figure a “RAT.”
Republican politicians also had harsh words during Monday’s hearing, repeatedly picking apart Dean’s comments, as well as his credibility.
